The material for this (the fifth) edition of a Bibliography of Settle- 
ments has been derived from answers to a list of twenty-four questions 
sent to the head residents in all known settlements, from printed reports, 
from material gathered in the Crerar, Newberry, sociological library 
of the University of Qiicago and Public library of Qiicago, and from 
the files of Hull House and The Commons. That it is well nigh an 
impossibility to furnish an accurate or complete bibliography will be easily 
understood. The material is in pamphlets and circulars which do not find 
a place in public collections, and in periodicals which are too numerous 
and too incompletely catalogued to be trustworthy. It has not been possi- 
ble to authenticate every reference obtained. Articles of the local daily 
press have been omitted as too inaccessible to be of value, except in the 
case of a few new settlements about which nothing else has been written. As 
many articles have appeared which do not represent a settlement correctly 
from the point of view of the residents, each settlement has been asked 
to indicate the articles which have its sanction. This does not mean that 
other references under each settlement are not approved by it. 

It is needless to say that churches, missions as well as training schools 
of various kinds, have absorbed settlement methods so completely that it 
is difficult to make distinctions. It is to be hoped that some that have 
been anxious to call themselves settlements will be willing to adhere to 
old terms. In spite of the looseness in the use of name and idea, which 
is perhaps more or less inevitable, so much of what is good has permeated 
the life and activities of many institutions that it is evident that the 
indirect influence of settlements is a factor not to be ignored. There are 
settlements with no residents that have more truly the settlement spirit 
than many another with a number of resident workers. There are settle- 
ments with a definite propaganda which touch the life about them more 
closely than others that claim to hold themselves open to every desire of 
the neighborhood, regardless of creed, race or sex. Moreover, to judge 
fairly one must know work at first hand, and that of course is an impossi- 
bility in any such compilation. Even then, any decision must often depend 
upon personal feeling or predilection. Therefore this bibliography does 
not attempt to settle the vexed question of what constitutes a "settlement." 
It aims only to give clearly the necessary information that each reader may 
judge for himself. At the risk of being too statistical and mechanical and 
of placing too much emphasis on things done the editor has adhered to 
certain divisions, but only with the end of showing distinctions in ideals. 

It is interesting to note the adaptation of settlement methods to rural 
communities and in New England towns, whose new great foreign popula- 
tions make a social problem akin to that of the South, and to watch the 
appearance of the settlement ideal in Austria or the Sandwich and Philip- 




pine Islands. It is certainly worthy of comment that in the old city of 
Prague a man arose with the idea of social sharing at almost the same time 
that Edward Denison went to live in East London. 

There seems to be a growing tendency on the part of those longest 
interested in settlements to deplore institutionalism and to go back to the 
original underlying spirit Some new settlements have even started 
out with a reaction against clubs and are trying to do all work with the 
children in connection with the home. Hence the opinions of Mr. Urwick 
and Mr. Booth as given in the history of the settlement movement may be 
of peculiar interest. 

Aside from general information, the aim of this bibliography has been 
to be of special service to those new to settlement work or ideas. With 
this in view, there have been added writings which have grown out of 
the experience of residence, but which are not perhaps strictly about settle- 
ment work. These may be found under Hull House, South End House, 
Lincoln House, the University Settlement (New York), Greenwich House, 
the Nurses Settlement, The Commons, etc. Also, in response to many 
requests a history of the settlement movement, its aims and its possible 
trend has been compiled from the writing of experts. The list of books 
suitable for a resident's library has been arranged from lists sent in by 
settlement workers. 

The editor wishes to thank all who have aided her in the compilation 
of this Bibliography of Settlements, especially Mr. Paul U. Kellogg of 
Charities, who has placed at her disposal much valuable information. 

Corrections and additions will be gratefully received.

''^np^HE idea of the sharing of the life of the poor by university men 
I owes its origin to no one person. It has been a gradual develop- 
•■• ment, which has taken up elements from the teaching and influence 
of nearly all the great spiritual leaders at the universities during 
the last thirty years. As early as i860 Frederic Maurice was establishing 
the Working Men's College and securing the services of young Cambridge 
graduates as they came up to London for conducting classes in their spare 
time. ... In 1867 the University Extension Movement had its begin- 
ning from Cambridge. . . . But it was at Oxford that 
the feeling of humanity urged men to go and make their homes 
in the city of social exiles at the East End of London, living 
there the life they had learned to live under the influence of the 
university. ... It was to the late Rev. John Richard Green, vicar 
of St. Philip's, Stepney, and historian of the English people, that Edward 
Denison went in 1867 and sought an opportunity to live and work among 
his parishioners. Dension was a young Oxford man of wealth and social 
position, and at first Green could hardly believe that he was in earnest. 
But he took a lodging near by and used to visit the people of the neighbor- 
hood, and often addressed them publicly on the subject of religion. Un- 
fortunately his health failed him and he came to an early death. So also 
when Arnold Toynbee resolved to spend the summer vacation of 1875 in 
Whitechapel, he went to the Rev. Samuel A. Bamett, vicar of St. Jude's. 
These last two names are the most closely identified of all with the original 
Universities Settlement."* 

"The first American settlement was established by Dr. 
Stanton Coit in New York in 1887. . . . Dr. Coit called 
his undertaking a Neighborhood Guild, and . . . the 
conception of the settlement set forth in his book, "Neigh- 
borhood Guilds," and since worked out to a degree by him at 
Leighton Hall in London, is to my mind the most satisfactory that has ever 
been set forth. After Dr. Coit's removal to London the Neighborhood 
Guild was gathered up in the University Settlement. . . . Two years 
after the opening of the Neighborhood Guild t^^^ffeettlements were estab- 
lished 'so nearly at the same time that the matter of priority is an amiably 
mooted question, which have ever since stood as striking monuments to 
the public spirit, executive capacity and sound sense of the yoimger genera- 

s ^ 


tion of American women — ^the G)llege Settlement in New York and Hull 
House in Chicago. . . . Between that time and this, settlements have 
been established in all our great cities from the Atlantic to the Pacific. 
The term is used with such laxity that it is difficult to tell how many 
genuine enterprises of this sort there are in the country/** 

"We may, perhaps, claim for the hundreds of residents living in 
English and American settlements a sustained and democratic effort to 
apply their ethical convictions to social and industrial conditions in those 
localities where life has become most complicated and difficult."* 

"The settlement movement is only one manifestation of 
that wide humanitarian movement which, throughout Christen- 
dom, but pre-eminently in England, is endeavoring to embody 
itself, not in a sect, but in society itself. Certain it is that 
spiritual force is found in the settlement movement, and it is also true 
that this force must be evoked and must be called into play before 
the success of any settlement is assured. There must be the overmastering 
belief that all that is noblest in life is common to men as men, in order 
to accentuate the likeness and ignore the differences which are found among 
the people the settlement constantly brings into juxtaposition. It aims 
in a measure to lead whatever of social life its neighborhood may afford, 
to focus and give form to that life, to bring to bear upon it the results of 
cultivation and training; but it receives in exchange for the music of 
isolated voices the volume and strength of the chorus. The settlement, 
then, is an experimental effort to aid in the solution of the social and 
industrial problems which are engendered by the modern conditions of 
life in a great city. It insists that these problems are not confined to 
any portion of a city. It is an attempt to relieve, at the same time, 
the over-accumulation at one end of society and the destitution at the 
other; but it assumes that this over-accumulation and destitution is most 
sorely felt in things that pertain to social and educational advantages. 
The one thing to be dreaded in the settlement is that it loses its flexi- 
bility, its power of quick adaptation, its readiness to change its methods 
as its environment may demand. It must be open to conviction and must 
have a deep and abiding sense of tolerance. It must be hospitable and 
ready for experiment. It should demand from its residents a scientific 
patience in accumulation of facts and the steady holding of their sympathies 
as one of the best instruments for that accumulation."* 

I. "Three things seem to be contained in the neighborhood 
ideal : First, a spirit of genuine neighborliness ; second, a very 
strong sense of civic duty, and the third, a sense of responsi- 
bility for the standard of life among the neighbors. At pres- 
ent in most settlements several difficulties are met with 


Points of 


in attempting to realize this ideal: (i) Many of the residents do not come 
to settle but to spend a limited number of months in the hope of doing 
a little and learning much. (2) Nearly every settlement is compelled through 
periodical statistical reports to justify its existence in the eyes of outside 
subscribers. (3) Fromij^se facts of transient workers and tabulated reports 
there follows as a noRsary evil the widespread tendency to employ 
machinery in order to produce effects. Although the number of so-called 
settlements has largely increased, we must not lose sight of the fact, dis- 
heartening as it may be, that many of them are training colleges, not set- 


tlements at all, and that no real attempt has been made to realize the set- 
tlement ideal except by a few scattered individuals. So long as ninety 
per cent of the residents turn their back on the colony as soon as they 
have gained enough experience to be valuable, not very extensive results 
may be hoped for." 

II. "Settlements are still experimental. They are far from having 
reached the clear waters of an assured position, but are a success if only be- 
cause they have widened out the idea and given new form to the practice of 
neighborliness and have thus made for social solidarity. They do not 
perhaps necessarily represent so high a personal ideal as that of Edward 
Denison, who lived alone in a poor street in East London; but they are 
more practical than isolated effort and in spite of the drawbacks of the 
community life and the artificialities and partial separation from ordinary 
social life which are involved. They give scope for the very effective con- 
centration of many minds on one general aim. Their stability in the future 
depends on the amount of personal service they can secure of the kind that 
is needed"."

"The idea of a College Settlement was first discussed by Smith College 
students in 1887, and in the following year a plan was formulated and an 
appeal for money was sent out. In October, 1889, the New York College 
Settlement was opened in Rivington Street, but it was not till May that 
there was any real organization among those interested in the maintenance 
of the settlement. The College Settlements Association was formed partly 
with the idea of organizing and supporting settlements, and further, as 
the report of the electoral board says, to bring all college women within 
the scope of a common purpose and a common work. ... To extend 
the educating power of the settlement idea is the object of the College 
Settlements Association. The association would imite all college women 
and all who account themselves our friends in the trend of a great modem 
movement; would touch them with a common sympathy and inspire them 
with a common ideal." — Second Annual Report, 1892, 

The association is represented by an electoral board, which apportions 
the funds, transacts the business and controls its general policy. 

The settlements included in the association are the New York College 
Settlement, the Philadelphia College Settlement, and the Boston College 
Settlement, otherwise known as Denison House. They are called college 
settlements because they are chiefly controlled and supported by college 
women, although generous support is received from other sources, and 
residence is in no way restricted to college women. — Susan G, Walker in 
Third Edition of Bibliography of Settlements, i8q/. . . 


Through this loyalty [to the college settlements] ... it has come 
about that a large proportion of collegiate alumnae are, in spirit, settlement 
women, and carry their motive into their home life and work. For the 
inculcation of this spirit the most influential personal force has been that 
exerted by Miss Vida D. Scudder, who . . . has constantly been set- 
ting forth their motive with deep intensity and insight. — Mr. Robert A.

(Character of the work: "The settlement is in the Italian and Mexican

and young women are held regularly during the week. A bank and library 
are open to the neighborhood. The work of the district nurse, whose sal- 
ary is paid to the settlement by the city, is invaluable to the neighborhood. 
Through one of the workers who has been appointed recently a member of 
the the public playground commission, the settlement has taken an active 
interest in the first public playground soon to be opened in Los Angeles. 
Through another worker, a member of the Juvenile Court committee, it 
keeps in close contact with the Juvenile Court work. To encourage all, 
to awaken in each a knowledge of the power within himself; to make 
each realize the possibility and necessity of developing that power in what- 

California. 19 

ever direction it may lead for the good of those about him and the com- 
munity in which he lives is the aim of the Castelar settlement."

This report should not be closed without emphasizing the importance of 
the settlement idea to the growth of a democratic community. Our northern 
and eastern cities have become of late years the Mecca of an increasing num- 
ber of immigrants, representing an increasing variety of nationalities and types. 
They all come under one impulse — to better their condition. Most of them 
are poor; many of them are ignorant of our language. At the time of the 
last census New Haven discovered that 55 per cent of its population were 

22 Connecticut — ^Delaware — ^District of Columbia. 

of foreign parentage, and that nationalities which twenty years before had 
barely been represented no^ counted their thousands. They arc character- 
istic of the whole northeastern part of the United States, and they deter- 
mine the character of one of our social problems. We have tried to 
absorb them. The common school has proved to be a valuable solvent, 
but it alone cannot do everything. There must be some means by which 
different sections of the city and different types of the city population may 
come to know and understand each other. The social settlement furnishes 
the center at which this meeting takes place. — Mr, Henry W, Farnatn in

^4, 1905-

A social settlement is, fundamentally, a private residence, the house 
of a family who aspire to make their house a useful social center. About 
these residents volunteer helpers gather, both from within and from outside 
the immediate neighborhood. Through friendships, through having "good 
times" together, through working for the interests of the neighborhood 
and inspiring each other with ideals, courage and civic spirit, the people 
who compose the various clubs, classes and social gatherings of "the 
House" endeavor to upbuild and enrich the lives of themselves and their 
community. — Pamphlet (III), entitled Opportunities and Needs at Neighbor-

Number of non-resident workers, 40. 

Character of work: The intellectual, manual, recreative, civic, ethical 
and religious work with the multitude of' small groups, centering at and 
managed by the house, indoors, on playground, in park, museum and 
"Camp Commons," by no means measures its influence. For outside organi- 
zations using its facilities in their own or neighborhood interests are as 
effective as anything attempted by the residents. The gymnasium is at 
the daily disposal of the neighboring Montefiore public school, whose build- 
ing IS pitifully inadequate for the neediest children to be found in the 
city. Alumni associations of three public schools regularly meet here, as 

Illinois. 25 

docs the "Sisters" School Club of St. Stephen's Roman Catholic parish. 
The Armenian colony unites its diverse interests under our roof; the 
nationalists, the old Gregorian Church and the Protestant mission meeting 
separately and sometimes together. The alumni and other associations of 
Lutheran churches and also a Catholic temperance order are equally at 
home on this common ground. Pleasure clubs, athletic associations, private 
musical and elocution classes share the hospitality of the house. The tele- 
phone exchange girls through a self-governing club supply other settle- 
ment organizations with entertainment programs and assist in other features 
of the work. Public school teachers and district nurses come to it for 
fheir noon-day rest. The Chicago Daily News free public lecture course 
for the adult constituency of the school district is held in our auditorium. 
All political parties hold their mass meetings there. The Tabernacle 
Church has the use of the whole new building, reared on its old comer for 
its services. Sunday-school, children's church and weekly appointments, 
which are independent of and distinct from settlement occasions. By a 
mV)re direct medium of exchange than money, industrial values have inter- 
changed at Chicago Commons. Without fear or favor men have expressed 
themselves and have interpreted to each other across the lines of industrial 
cleavage and class antagonism. Extreme radicalism has well nigh disap- 
peared through the safety valve of free speech. The "free-floor" discus- 
sions, having fulfilled their function in establishing respect for individual 
convictions and freedom of personal expression, have been superseded by 
a club of neighborhood men for social fellowship in the study and practice 
of good citizenship. Such has been the confidence inspired by the some- 
times costly impartiality of the settlement's independent attitude that the 
services of its warden are sought for the arbitration of industrial disputes. 
After eight years of struggle, in which the Community Club became the 
live-wire of the Municipal Voter's League, its aldermen have been among 
the ablest and most aggressive constituents of an honest majority of fifty- 
five, easily controlling the remnant of fifteen "gray wolves" still surviving 
the killing-oflF of the pack. These wider aspects of the settlement work, 
although of most interest to the general reader, do not even indicate the 
influence of the house as a neighborhood center upon individual character, 
home life, and the social relationships of the community. But in the fel- 
lowship of its work Chicago Commons is as little of an organization and 
as much of a personal relationship as it can be made. It seeks to unify and 
help all other organizations and people in the neighborhood that make 
for righteousness and brotherhood. It is not a church, but is a helper 
of all the churches, and is in active co-operation with the only English^ 
speaking congregation among them. It is not a charity, but aids in the 
organization and mutual helpfulness of all charitable agencies. It is not a 
school, but it is in tributary sympathy and action with the public schools 
to which it will give up any part of its work that they will take up. It 
is nonpartisan, but has been a rallying point whence the balance of po- 
litical power has been effectively wielded in aldermanic and legislative 
elections for nearly a decade. It is not an exclusive social circle, but 
aspires to be a center and source of the best social life and the highest 
civic patriotism. It is not a "class conscious" group, but refusing to be 
classified, strives to interpret classes to each other and to mediate for a 
just industrial peace. — Pamphlet, Chicago Commons, a Social Center for 
Civic Co-operation, issued by the Settlement, December, 1904, 

Primarily social and educational, aimed to promote co-operation and reci- 
procity within the neighborhood and among others who meet on com- 
mon ground for fellowship and to exchange values; adjustment of differences 
and betterment of relations between employers and employes; to bring 
students into first-hand contacts with life; co-operative relations are main- 
tained with universities and professional schools; political education and 
action are sought through nonpartisan organization; training in philantropic

and social service is provided through the Institute of Social Science and 

Arts. — Head Resident

(Formerly Epworth House.) 

305 West Van Buren Street, Chicago, 111. Telephone, Monroe i486. (Former ad- 
dresses, 210 South Halsted Street, 49 Pearce Street, 219-221 South Sangamon Street.) 

Founded by Rev. Dr.- (jeor^e W. Gray under the auspices of the M. E. Church, 
March i, 1893, "to study and improve the social, industrial and spiritual condition of 
the people in the congested districts of Chicago and other cities." Became unde- 
nominational and independent in May, 1896. Incorporated June 6, 1896. 

Head resident, Mai<y E. Dix. 

Present number of residents: men, 3; women, 3; total, 6. Average time in resi- 
dence, from one to ten years. Number of non-resident workers, 4. 

The departments of the Forward Movement thus far organized are the 
social settlement under the direction of Miss Mary E. Dix as head worker; 
the summer outing, with George A. Fox, manager; the Vesta Putnam 
Summer School for Crippled Children, Miss Florence E. Prouty, principal, 
and the propaganda under the immediate supervision of Rev. (jeorge W. 
Gray, D. D., general superintendent. The Forward Movement stands for the 
physical, industrial, educational, social and spiritual betterment of the people 
who live in the congested districts of our large cities; through culturing the 
child, improving the home, inspiring self-help; by means of physical culture, 
elevating amusements, social contact, practical instruction and otherwise ; per- 
meating all with the spirit and power of the Christ-life. — Forward Move- 
ment Record, Vol I, No. 2, November, 1904. 

The Forward Movement summer outing is a philanthropic enterprise. 
Its 135 acres of woods of unexcelled beauty, its buildings and other per- 
.manent improvements have been provided by philanthropic individuals. The 
maintenance and care of the park, its boarding department and other cur- 
rent expenses are made self-supporting, i. e., those who enjoy the advan- 

28 Illinois. 

tages of the park either pay or have some charitable institution or person 
pay for them a fixed rate, made sufficiently high to cover all current 
expenses, which includes also a certain percentage of gain to be set 
aside for repairing roads, paths, buildings, etc., thus giving to the summer 
outing a permanent character. It is not a charity enterprise, but is run 
on business methods with the aim of furnishing an outing at the least 
possible cost. Over 70 per cent of the persons who visited the park and 
remained for one to six weeks paid their own expenses in part or whole, 
while the remaining 30 per cent were sent by settlements, churches and 
other organizations doing charitable work. — Summer Outing Report, 1904.

and children's clubs, classes in English, embroidery, millinery, piano, dress- 
making, gymnasium. 

Bohemia, Poland, Germany, Norway, Sweden, the English Isles and 
Sunny Italy have large representation in the community, each in its own 
grouping, while among all are found many Americans. The object for 
which Gad's Hill social settlement was organized in 1898 was to teach the 
duties and responsibilities of American citizenship by promoting social 
intercourse, industrial pursuits, temperance and the mental and moral uplift 
of himianity. We seek to make childhood happy, youth industrious and old 
age comfortable, to bring to the people the opportunities for improvement, 
educational and industrial, which are only within the reach of more favored 
communities, to present ideals and incentives which will make possible a 
better citizenship and home life for the future, to share with our neighbors 
the sorrows, cares and joys which come to each one and to lend a helping 
hand wherever we can aid those in need of our service. In this industrial 
locality fifteen to twenty thousand men, women, boys and girls are em- 
ployed. It is conservative to say that fifty per cent live in this part of the 
city. — Pamphlet, 1898-1904.

Helen Heath Settlement. 

(Seb Fellowship House.) 

Henry Booth House. 

171 West Fourteenth Place, Chicago, 111. (Formerly 135 West Fourteenth Place.) 

Founded, May, 1898, by the Society for Ethical Culture "to arouse a higher civic 
and^ neighborhood life by creating an educational and social center." Maintained by 
Society for Ethical Culture and outside subscriptions. 

Director, Emma Pischel. (Former directors, W. H. Noyes, Miss Mary Tenney and 
Miss C^ertrude Bamum.) 

Number of non-resident workers, 40. 

Henry Booth House has never been housed for residential purposes. 
The head worker has had to live outside, and of course there have been 
no other residents. Just now we are making great efforts to get sufficient 
money to erect a modest settlement building. One of our aims is to have 
the schools of the neighborhood opened as neighborhood centers, carrying 
on necessary educational work in our community. We believe in school 
extension work and mean to promote it. Our outing work is increasing 
each year. It is sorely needed, principally because of the opportunity it 
gives for contact with different ideals of life. Our woman's club is espe- 
cially active. It meets in homes of members and is doing splendid work. 
The educational department is providing music for the night schools 
around us and is taking the women of the district to visit schools to 
establish a better relation between teacher and parents. We are also 
trying to have the bathroom of one night school opened from 7 to 9 
o'clock evenings for the neighborhood people. The girls* sewing school, 
with seventy girls and ten teachers, carried on this work in our nearest 
school building during the months of May and June of this year (1904), 
our house having been closed the first of May. — Director.

Hull House. 

335 South Halsted Street, Chicago, IlL Telephone, Monroe 70. 

Founded, September, 1889, by Miss Jane Addams and Miss Ellen Gates Starr. The 

30 Illinois. 

income from apartments, coffee bouse and shops furnish half the expense, the other 
half is met by subscriptions. 

Head worker, Miss Addams. 

Present number of residents, men 14, women 16, total 30. Three in residence 15 
years, the rest from ten to one, the aveitige probably six. Number of non-resident 
workers, 75. 

The development of Hull House from the four rooms on the second 
floor of the old family residence of Mr. Charles J. Hull to its present 
many imposing buildings is a difficult matter to keep pace with, even for 
one who has watched it at first hand. It has built up and back and 
stretched out on either side. It has in addition to the many usual settlement 
activities of clubs, classes, etc.; a coffee house, a working women's club, 
a theater with fine organ, an industrial museum with shops and various 
handicrafts, a women's club house, apartments for residents, a men's house, 
a children's building, etc. In spite of its many-sidedness it has preserved 
the spirit of early settlement ideals. It is not alone an influence in its own 
neighborhood but a power in the entire municipality. 

Hull House stands easily first, both for achievement and significance, 
among American settlements. It is like Toynbee Hall in the originality 
and distinction which has characterized every part of its work and in solid 
and abiding achievement, while there is determination and daring in its 
work. . . . The deeply impressive thing about Hull House is that the 
finest quality of settlement spirit runs through all this complicated activity, 
holding it in solution and leaving the remembrance, not of an institution, 
but of personality, in the mind of even the casual visitor. — Robert A. 
Woods in the Social Settlement Movement After Sixteen Years. 

Some of the settlements, notably Hull House, may be said to be the 
civic centers of even the metropolitan communities in which they are 
located; chiefly, perhaps, because the new civic spirit finds its ripest expres- 
sion in them and from them permeates many of the new conventional and 
fashion-ridden quarters of the city. — Charles Zueblin, Settlements and the 
New Civic Spirit, Char., 1903. 

Object of Hull House (as stated in its charter) : To provide a center 
for a higher civic and social life; to institute and maintain educational and 
philanthropic enterprises, and to investigate and improve the conditions in 
the industrial districts in ' Chicago. Hull House is neither a university 
settlement nor a college settlement; it calls itself a social settlement, and 
attempts to make social 'intercourse express the growing sense of the 
economic unity of society. It is an attempt to add the social function to 
democracy. — Jane Addams, in Forum, November, 1892. 

No American settlement has been the subject of more articles and 
reviews in the press than has Hull House. A complete bibliography would 
fill many pages of this pamphlet. (All daily newspaper articles are here 
omitted.) See "Philanthropy and Social Progress" and "Hull House Maps 
and Papers," $1.75, both published by T. Y. Crowell & Co., New York.

The first really co-operative neighborhood social center is now being 
planned by the Neighborhood House Association. For some years the 
Neighborhood House has been conducting social activities at the comer 
of Sixty-seventh and May streets. Recently it became apparent that it 
would be necessary to build a new house and remove to a new location. 
In discussing the plans for the necessary reorganization the residents and 
members of the different clubs decided that it would be well to follow- 
out as nearly as possible the ideal of a neighborhood guild as outlined by 
Dr. Stanton Coit and partially realized in the Neighborhood Guild of New 
York. The Neighborhood House Association has been incorporated. The 
governing body is to be a board of twenty-five directors, most of whom 
live in the neighborhood. The democratic nature of the scheme will be 
carried out in the internal management. After the house is once estab- 
lished it is hoped that the income from the use of the hall, club dues, etc., 
will pay a large share of the running expenses. The Neighborhood House 
Association is thus built upon true guild and co-operative lines. No other 

Illinois. 35 

similar organization, inaugurated in Chicago, has so frankly and freely 
called upon the neighborhood in which it moves to assume such large 
financial and managerial burdens. There is not a figurehead on the board 
of directors, its members are all active members, thoroughly acquainted 
with the possibilities and limitations of the work. — From '* Co-operation"

Northwestern University Settlement. 

122 Augusta Street, comer Noble Street, Chicago, 111. (Former addresses, 252 
West Chicago Avenue and 21 Rice Street.) Telephone, Monroe 1717. 

Founded in 1891 by Prof. Charles Zueblin, Mrs. Henry Wade Rogers* and mem- 
bers of the faculty and students of the Northwestern University "to serve as a neighbor- 
hood center for the community." House built for purpose, 1901. Incoroorated 1898. 
Maintained by individual subscriptions and volunteer service. 

Head resident, none. House meetings control settlement work. Council of the 
association controls financial administration. (Former head residents: Raymond Robins, 
1903-1904; Russell J. Wilbur, 1902-1903; William Hard, 1901-1902; Harry Ward, Mrs. 
Mary Sly.) 

Present number of residents, men 5, women 4, children x, total xo. Number of 
non-residents. 70. 

Character of work: The departments of the work are clubs for al\ 
ages and sexes, educational classes, domestic science, kindergarten, music, 
picture loan library, savings bank, day nursery, coffee house. 

The Northwestern University Settlement was the second settlement 
established in Chicago, and is located in the Sixteenth Ward in the north- 
west side of the city. It is a ward of working people, eager in the main 
to get on in the world, and ready to co-operate for better social and civic 
conditions in their neighborhood and district. The population is almost 
entirely foreign, made up of about 40,000 Poles, 15,000 Germans and 12,000 
Scandinavians, with a sprinkling of other nationalities. There is a total 
population of about 70,000 people in the world, which has an area of less 
than one square mile, giving the Sixteenth Ward the densest population 
in the city. — Circular No. 8, September, 1899. 

The entire administration of the work of the Settlement is controlled 
by the House Meeting, which elects, its chairman, to serve at the pleasure 
of the meeting. All matters of administration, club and class work, etc., 
are determined by a majority vote at the House Meeting as a court of 
last resort. The House organization is one of committees, directing, under 
a chairman, the various branches of the work, and reporting weekly to 
the House Meeting. A delegate from the House Meeting sits as a member 
of the Settlement Council, and a delegate from the Settlement Council 
sits as a member of the House Meeting. Thus the financial and admin- 
istrative centers are kept in entire cognizance of the transactions of each 
body. The objects of this organization are: First, to do away with 
titles, and the useless waste of time incident to a single head as the fount 
of authority in all departments of the work, and the false values that 
inevitably attach to such a head, giving to the person in such a position, on 
the one hand, the heavy handicap of continual consultation upon matten' 
with which other residents are more familiar and better able to determi 
wisely, and the more undesirable false value in the esteem of oth< 
which always attaches to the person of a single representative head,

well as the consequent detraction from the significance and proper relation 
of other members of the group to the work as a whole. While our 
present administration may be said to be an experiment, until time has 
proved its efficiency and livability through some period of time, the 
immediate results have been highly satisfactory. — Letter from Mr. Raymond 
Robbins, 1904.

University of Chicago Settlement. 

4630 Gross Avenue, Chicago, III Telephone, Yards 596. (Former addresses, 4638 
Ashland Avenue and 4655 Gross Avenue.) 

Founded, January, 1894, by the Philanthropic Committee of the Christian Union 
of the University of Chicago. Maintained by subscriptions collected by the University 
Settlement Board, assisted by the Women's University Settlement League, by collections 
from the Sunday service of the University of Chicago, by private contributions and by 
settlement clubs. 

Head resident. Miss Mary McDowell. 

Present number of residents, 6. Number of non-resident workers, » 

Illinois. 37 

Character of work: Gymnasium, penny saving bank, concerts, 
lectures and entertainments, classes in correspondence, manual training, 
basketry, dancing, music, public library station, picture loan library. The 
settlement has secured a public bath, two small parks, public library 
station and free dispensary. A number of neighborhood organizations 
meet in the gymnasium. One of the residents is a probation officer of 
the Juvenile Court. It has a station for modified milk. 

This new building is to have about twenty-one rooms. The east half 
is to be for public purposes. The first floor near the street will have a 
reading room, public library station and a club room. The second floor 
will give two club rooms for the young men; the third floor has a small 
but attractive music hall, that will hold about 200 people. The west half 
will have living rooms for the settlement residents. — Circular, 1904. 

The location is west of the stock yards, and is in an industrial com- 
munity, of which the inhabitants are Irish, German, Bohemian, Polish, 
Lithuanian, Scandinavian, Hungarian, Finnish, Welsh, Scotch and English. 
The settlement takes the different peoples as it finds them, recognizing 
that which is of universal value in their ideals and through the con- 
sciousness of common social interests unites them in a new civic life. 
The gymnasium is the neighborhood club house, the settlement house 
is a center of friendly service and neighborly fellowship. — Circular of In- 
formation, 1903. 

Perhaps the spirit of this settlement can be summed up no better 
than in the Civic Creed written by the head resident: "God hath made 
of one blood all nations of men, and we are His children, brothers and 
sistfers all. We are citizens of these United States, and we believe our 
flag stands for self-sacrifice for the good of all the people. We want, 
therefore, to be good citizens of our great city, and will show our love 
for her by our works. Chicago does not ask us to die for her welfare; 
she asks us to live for her, and so to live and so to act that her govern- 
ment may be pure, her officers honest, and every corner of her territory 
a place fit to grow the best men and women, who shall rule over her.**

Number of non-resident workers, 30.

I doubt whether we could be properly called a "settlement." Mr. Miller, 
my predecessor, lived in our building, and gave the institution the name of 
Bethel Home Settlement. I suppose we would more properly be called an in- 
stitutional church. We identify ourselves with the life of the community 
and seek to build it up. I am heartily in sympathy with the original settle- 
ment idea. I believe our work is thoroughly in line with it. We do some 
things, such as relief work, which are not usually considered good for 
settlements, but the undeveloped state of philanthropic work here makes 
fine classification of work unpractical. — L. H. Halbert.

In a beautiful valley at the Forks of the Troublesome Creek, 45 miles 
across the mountains and up narrow, rough streams, from the railroad, 
lies the village of Hindman, in Knott County, Ky., the most illiterate county 
in all the southern mountains. The main street winds along the Trouble- 
some Creek, the church at one end and the school at the other. The valley 
is very narrow and the steep mountain sides, go straight up from the 
creek. The school property consists of three acres of ground. (The men 
of the county paid $700.00 for two acres of this land, and gave it as an 
inducement to have this school at Hindman.) a good convenient school 
building of five rooms, an artistic log workshop of two rooms, built by 
the pupils of the school; a log cabin settlement home of eighteen rooms 
(in process of construction) for the teachers and the boys and girls from 
the country, who are given a chance to work their way through school, 
at the same time receiving practical lessons in home making. — Pamphlet

all men. Its board of directors and advisers includes merchants, teachers, 
ministers, lawyers, editors — men of all shades of opinion as regards religion, 
business and politics, but all agreed on one point — that the work of the 
social settlement demands the co-operation of every citizen of the two 
cities. — Year Book, ipo2.

Fraternity House has no resident workers and consequently has been 
unable to fulfill some of the larger civic duties of other settlements. None 
the less, along social and educational lines, Fraternity House does stand 
as a common meeting ground, where workers of different creeds and widely 
varying ideals and motives bring of their best to those who come to them. —

Founded in 1893 by Rev. Edward A. Lawrence 'Ho amuse and instruct the boys 
and girls in and around Parkin Street.*' Incorporated. Maintained by the Lawrence 
Memorial Association through annual subscriptions, special donations and entertainments. 

Head resident, Alice Emily Robbins. (Former head resident. Miss Emma Salisbury.) 

Present number of residents, women 8. Number of non-resident workers, 40. 

"The settlement offers educational and industrial classes, as well as 
opportunities for recreation, to the people of Southwest Baltimore. There 
is a kindergarten, library and reading room and gymnasium." 

As far as we are able to interpret neighborhood conditions, we should say 
that there was every opportunity here for social service. It is essentially an 
industrial neighborhood. There are many large establishments, the principal 
ones being the Baltimore & Ohio shops, on Pratt Street, and Bartlett & 
Hayward's Iron Foundry. People live in the neighborhood where they 
work, so that there is a settled population, and a real neighborhood feeling. 
— Ann, Report, 1904, 

The institutional activities of the house, as interesting as they are in 
themselves, are, after all, but the means through which the real work is 
done. What we are trying to bring about is the social and moral better- 
ment of the whole neighborhood, and this result can be obtained only 
through an intelligent understanding of neighborhood conditions, and a 
sympathetic study of personal character. The house, then, is - not only 
a meeting place for clubs and classes, and a home for the residents, but 
it is a larger home for the people of the neighborhood. We hope it will 
be a center >yhere people from all quarters of the city, regardless of creed 
or partisanship, may "meet, mingle and minister" for the common good. —

♦The Prospect Union. 

744 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, Mass. 

Founded in January, 1891, by Rev. Robert E. Ely, Professor Francis G. Peabody 
of Harvard University, and a small group of Harvard students and workingmen, with 
a view of joining hands in mutual helpfulness and co-operation. Mr. Ely is head worker. 

The promotion of brotherliness, especially between Harvard students 
and professors and the workingmen of Cambridge and elsewhere, is and 
has been from the beginning the aim of the Prospect Union. It combines 
features of social settlement and university extension work, and the four 
men residents upon the field clearly entitle it to status as a settlement 
It differs from most settlements in being far more a men's and far less 
a children's work. Qasses in elementary and advanced branches, lectures, 
concerts entertainments, art exhibitions, smoke-talks, all combine to the 
main end of the encouragement and cultivation of natural, self-respecting, 
personal contact between men of different classes, nationalities, temperaments 
and conditions in life. The building owned and occupied by tiie Union 
is the former city hall of Cambridge. The most conspicuous outgrowth

of the Union's work is the American Co-operative Union, devoted to the 
encouragement of co-operation upon the Rochdale plan. A co-operative 
printing and a distributive society center at the Union, and there also is

Character of work: Work with adult immigrants, in clubs, classes, 
lectures and civic committees. Jews, Italians, Poles and Irish are the con- 
stituency. Improvement clubs, educational classes for men and women,

Denison House. 

(Boston College Settlement.) 

91, 93 and 95 Tyler Street, Boston, Mass. Telephone, Oxford 502. 

Opened, December 27, 1892, under auspices of the College Settlements Association. 
Named in honor of Edward Denison "for social and educational work and neighborhood 
co-operations for better conditions." Maintained by an appropriation from College Settle- 
ments Association, subscription from friends and board of residents. 

Head worker, Miss Helena S. Dudley. 

Number of residents, men i, women 12, total 13. Several residents have been at 
Denison House from five to ten years. Number of non-resident workers, 50. 

Character of the work: Social clubs, classes in cooking, sewing, sloyd, 
basketry, cobbling, Shakespeare, English, current events, travel, French, 
political economy, arithmetic, embroidery, etc,; station for modified milk; 
stamp savings; classes in Italian and English for foreigners. 

Fully as important as the routine work which a Settlement carries on 
is the opportunity it offers to watch at close range the conditions that 
hamper the development, and to emphasize from time to time the most 
obvious and expedient points of attack in the campaign for social righteous- 
ness. An aroused public conscience is providing better houses, places of 
recreation, gymnasium, trade schools and libraries, and these are good; but 
these, as well as the neighborhood activities of the settlements are so 
inadequate that in making any report of settlement work it seems only 
honest to point out that however good may be clubs and classes for recrea- 
tion and instruction, still they can exert slight influence in comparison with 
the total effect of the environment resulting from the conditions of a 
crowded city life and our present industrial system. We pursue the organ- 
ized work of the house with no less vigor and enthusiasm, because we 


realize its limitations. It cannot re-create the life of its neighborhood, but 
it offers to many individuals certain advantages of industrial and intellectual 
training and opportunities for wholesome amusement. — Report of Head- 
worker, Denison House, in Report of College Settlement Association, 1903. 
The neighborhood of Denison House has undergone a gradual change 
in its nationality since the house was opened in 1892. Many American 
and Irish families have moved away; the more prosperous younger gen- 
eration as they marry going to the suburbs, where pleasanter conditions 
can be had for the same money. In the places left vacant the newly arrived 
immigrant has settled, and we now have about us a number of Syrians, 
Greeks and Italians. The house is seeking means of meeting their need 
of learning the laws and customs of their adopted country. One is sur- 
prised to find such variety of social conditions among these people. While 
many are very poor and fall naturally into the ranks of unskilled labor, 
there are many others well born and educated, though poor, who seek 
here broader opportunities. These gain but a scant glimpse of the attractive 
side of American life, though they are quite able to appreciate it. They 
are often made to feel themselves unwelcome intruders by their neighbors 
in the tenement house quarter, for, besides the natural prejudice against 
foreigners, there is the justifiable objection to any people who, by accepting 
less than current wages, menace the American standard of living. — Report 
of Head-worker, Denison House, in Rep't of College Settlement Ass., igo4.

to all who come within its influence and for those who live within its four walls. 
It aims to come in close contact, and be identified with every neighborhood interest that 
may affect the welfare of the people in the district in which we are living. In this 
way we hope to secure the best results that can come from the union of such prin- 
ciples as those of the kindergarten and the settlement. — First Annual Report,

Number of non-resident workers, 45. 

This settlement is pre-eminently a kindergarten settlement. It has 
also stamp savings, classes in French, history, sewing, wood-carving, basket- 
weaving, raffia, etc., civil government and law, American literature, em- 
broidery, painting, dancing, and clubs for various ages, most of which 
have in connection educational features. There is also a reading-room 
and a Sunday class in ethics. The character of the neighborhood is almost 
entirely Jewish. 

For another twelve months the residents of the House have been 
watching or rather living in the life of the neighborhood, and at the end of 
this third period in this place one hesitates to claim any accurate 
knowledge or to make a single prediction. The forces at work around 
us are too tremendous to be fully comprehended,^ the foregrotmd 
so completely filled as to hide all else; and sometimes in the contempla- 
tion of much that is hideous and evil results seem too poor to justify 
effort. The Settlement as it is is an imperfect thing, limited and bound 
upon all sides. The exact lines of its development and its ultimate form 
no one can predict, but the sincere belief in that development is our present 
inspiration. — Head Resident Report for 1903,

has no resident workers, but its spirit is so essentially that of a true 
settlement and its work so helpful to many other settlements that it is 
included in this bibliography. Handicraft classes are the distinguishing 
feature of the work. There are eighteen distinct courses, representing an 
ascending scale of creative work, from the kindergarten up. There are 
fifty clubs and classes, with one thousand members. There is an employ- 
ment bureau, a dispensary, vacation house work in the country and play 
classes in the summer. ^

Character of work: Close-range effort within specific neighbor-

homes and factories, lectures, concerts, amateur dramatics, and, above 
all, informal though purposeful, neighborly intercourse. Centers of 
influence scattered at different points through the neighborhood; resi- 
dence houses similar to other houses about them, with rooms used 
in ways of general hospitality, but not, as a rule, for regularly ap- 
pointed gatherings; organized activities carried on in in a larger building, 
centrally located and specially designed for the purpose; special care taken 
to recognize and elicit what is best in spontaneous social groupings in the 
neighborhood; endeavor to meet the problem of lodging house, as well as 
of tenement house, population; two of the centers are especially located for 
this purpose, and at these an increasing number of informal gatherings

are held ; a boarding club and a room registry have been established ; 
promotion of and participation in a variety of voluntary and municipal 
effort toward social improvement in the larger South End district and 
throughout the city; joint action, so far as possible, with trade union and 
political leaders; study of social conditions locally and throughout the 
city, in co-operation with several colleges, and publication of the more 
important results. — Head Resident 

There has never been a time when the different residents as individuals 
found themselves in a more natural and personal relation with the people 
of the neighborhood. The neighborhood acquaintance and influence of the 
settlement group has reached a point where, while leaving very much to be 
sought for, it still seems like a realization of many of the dreams of the 
early days of the house. There is in a gratifying degree that acceptance 
of the general scheme of neighborhood betterment as an established part 
of the neighborhood life, that interchange of visits back and forth, that 
ease and naturalness in joint effort between residents and neighbors, that 
fair assumption of appropriate responsibilities all around — ^which are the 
ultimate ends for which the house exists. — Mr, Woods, in Thirteenth An- 
nual Report.

ment work. They can work with their hands, therefore they are useful 
as teachers. The lives of many of them will be spent with working men, 
as foremen, masters, employers. Therefore they appreciate the value of 
having early natural, friendly relations with boys and men of the working 
cl?LSS.— Head Resident

The nationality most largely represented in the neighborhood of the 
settlement is French-Canadian. Much of the poverty among these people 
is due to the fact that the introduction of iron vessels has hurt the trade of 
ship caulking, which many of the men were trained to. They do not read- 
ily adapt themselves to other work. A mistaken idea is common, that 
there is no great necessity in Detroit for such work as the settlement 
stands for. Of course, glaringly bad conditions do not exist here on such 
a scale as in the great cities, where any effort at improvement seems like 
a mere drop in the ocean. Neverthekss there is abundant opportunity for 
such effort here. Those active in the settlement work feel deeply the need 
of uplifting forces which exist, and are endeavoring to substitute for the 
evil influences of the saloon and uncleanly dwellings the good influences 
of healthful pastimes and such methods of cleanliness as can be made use 
of under existing conditions of housing. Perhaps through such effort the 
problem may be prevented from assuming larger proportions as the popula- 
tion increases. — Head Resident Report, 1899.

The idea of a settlement house in a crowded section of some city has 
become familiar, but few persons realize that, in a thinly settled rural com- 
munity, there may be as great a need of \ such a center of inspiration,

encouragement and help as a settlement house can give. As the act of 
incorporation allows an interest in sociological work in the whole state, it 
is the purpose of this association to know every one of its two hundred 
and thirty-four towns as thoroughly as possible and to act as a bureau of 
information for every town as to all the resources in the state which may 
be used for the betterment of a community. — Pamphlet, entitled Church

Whittier House. 

172 and 174 Grand Street, Jersey City, N. J. Telephone, 2684 Jersey City. 

Opened, in the People's Palace, December 20, 1893; removed to present address 
May 14, 1894; incorporated, for the following purposes: (i) Through friendship, neigh- 
borliness and personal influence to promote in the community such a relation of fellowship 
and mutual helpfulness between people of different occupations and different opportunities 
as shall improve the physical, intellectual and moral welfare of the neighborhood. The 
means to this end shall include, in addition to the personal forces of friendship, the 
formation of such kindergartens, classes, clubs and societies as shall promote the social 
ideal. (2) To establish a house which shall serve as the residence for those actively en- 
gaged in the work of the settlement, as the center for advantageously studying the social 
problem at close range and out of personal experience; as the meeting place for clubs, 
classes, conferences and entertainments, and as the common meeting ground for the 
development and expression of the social, civic and moral spirit of the community. (3) 
To co-operate with churches, with educational, charitable and labor organizations and 
with otner agencies organized for the improvement of social conditions. Maintained 
by voluntary contributions. There is a Whittier House Association, membership to 
which is $5.00 yearly. 

Head resident, Cornelia F. Bradford. 

Present number of residents, men 2, women 6, total 8. Average time in residence, 
3 years. Number of non-resident workers, 50. 

- Character of work : In addition to a large number of the more usual 
settlement activities along educational, industrial and social lines, Whittier 
House is notable for its co-operation with state and municipal authorities. 
As the city opens a night school, a kindergarten and dispensary, such work 
is discontinued at the settlement, for they would rather co-operate than 
compete with them. The Tenement House Protective League centralizes 
at Whittier House and the head resident is one of its members. Two 
of the inspectors of a tenement house commission were residents of the 
settlement The State Consumers* League meets often at Whittier House 
and some of the residents are officers of the league. There is active co- 
operation in the interests of child labor and the Children's Protective 
League. The settlement has lately been appealed to for assistance in 
restricting the number of saloons in the neighborhood. The head worker 
is also represented on the State Board of Charities and Corrections. 

There is now formed to work with us a neighborhood council composed 
of men in the neighborhood. It is made up of varying ages, denominations and 
occupations. It is for the purpose of helping in an intelligent and sympa- 
thetic manner the head worker and the house. It meets with the head 
worker once a month and will meet with the board of directors twice a

year. Being members of the neighborhood it can enter into the life of the 
neighborhood as men and as citizens, and thus work for the good of all 
concerned. — Tenth Annual Report, i903-*04. 

In the many-sidedness of settlement life lie its greatest potentialities. 
To the uniniated it seems incomprehensible because of its naturalness, its 
simplicity, and its directness. We are convinced that we have gained as 
much, if not more than we have given, and that we have learned more 
than we have taught. We now know that there are other standards besides 
our own, and quite as good as our own to be considered — standards of 
justice and of morality, of kindliness and of consideration. We have 
learned also that many things which we used to think were exceedingly 
proper and very necessary are of no consequence whatever, and we have 
come to enjoy a life without the trammels of too much conventionalism 
and are glad to know that often semblances are not realities. — Head Resi- 
dent in Eighth and Ninth Annual Reports, 1902, 1903.

Newark Neighborhood House. 

(Newark Social Settlbment Association.) 

555 Market Street, Newark, N. J. Telephone, Newark 3585. 

Founded January, 1905, "to establish neighborhood houses, conduct social research 
and act as a bureau of information." Maintained by private subscriptions. 

Head resident. Royal Loren Melendy. 

Present number of residents, men i, women i, children i, total 3. Number of non- 
resident workers, 15. 

The "Ironbound District" has been chosen for the first settlement partly 
because of its cosmopolitan nature and partly because it is the heart of 
the great factory district. In the section between Market and Ferry streets, 
from the Pennsylvania Railroad to Van Buren street, are the homes of 
two large colonies of "the strangers within our gates" — ^an Italian and a 
Slavic colony. In the latter colony are Poles, Lithuanians, Hungarians 
and a few hundred from the other Slavic peoples. Beyond Van Buren 
street, "Way Down Neck," and following the river, are the homes of 
thousands of German, Irish, English and American workmen and their 
families. The shopkeepers on the two main thoroughfares. Market and 
Ferry streets, are largely Jews and Germans. The houses in this section 
are representative of the various strata of society. Here are multitudes 
of tenements of the worst type, veritable cesspools of disease, into which 
are crowded the newly arrived, unskilled laborers, scores of small, neat 
houses owned by skilled laborers and a few houses of the well-to-do fami- j

lies. The diversity of activities that the varied needs of this district require 
was an additional reason for its selection. — A Prospectus, January, 1905.

able to pay, rent of rooms to graduate nurses, sale of surgical supplies, modified milk, etc.;

Orange Valley Social Institute. 

35 Tompkins Street, Orange Valley, N. J. Telephone, 345. 

Opened April i, 1897, under the auspices of a committee of citizens of Orange, 
N. J.; now governed by a Board of Directors of the Settlement Association; "to pro- 
vide educational and social opportunities for the people of the neighborhood. Main- 
tained by private contributions. 

Head resident, Adelaide Crommelin. (Former head residents, Bryant Venable, 
Charles H. Warren and Arthur Cleveland Hall.) 

Present number of residents, women 3. Number of non-resident workers, 35. 

Character of work: The work is social and educational. There are 
classes in sewing, basket-making, cooking and kitchen garden, a night school, 
a penny provident bank and library. 

Orange Valley includes the manufacturing district of the Oranges. In 
it are about ten large hat and box factories, around which are gathered a 
dense population of operatives. The crowded condition of the homes and 
the small incomes of the workers make it impossible for these people to 
provide for themselves the recreative and social surroundings that are both 
pleasant and profitable. At present the saloon has alone taken advantage 
of the situation, and as a result there is much intemperance and conse- 
quent poverty of home comforts. Differing from most other settlements, 
it is unique in being located in a rural community, yet having the perplex- 
ing problems of city settlements. — Head Worker.

Neighborhood House. 

511 Morris Avenue, N. Summit, N. J. (Former address, 553 Morris Avenue) 

Founded by members of the First Presbyterian Church, Summit In autumn of 
1900 mission was established, residence in 1901 in neighboring tenement. Now both 
are under one roof. It aims "to work out, if possible. Summit's immigration problem, 
represented in a small factory community on her outer limits." Incorporated March 30, 
1903. Maintained by First Presbyterian Church largely, but undenominational. 

Head resident. Miss Grace Elizabeth Paine. 

Present number of residents, women 3. Nimiber of non-resident workers, 35. 

Character of work: Sunday services and Sunday-schools, kindergarten, 
night school, young women's clubs, girls* and boys* clubs, penny provident 
bank, entertainments and lectures. 

The town of Summit, with its distinctively suburban characteristics, has 
on its northern outskirts a community that stands practically apart from 
the town life by reason of its industrial interests and large num- 
bers of foreign residents. The silk mill, around which the neighborhood 
has grown, employs between five hundred and six hundred workers. Other 
industries attract several hundred more, who live in this immediate vicinity 
and on the opposite shores of the Passaic river. The majority of the 
population are Syrians, Armenians and Polish Jews. Other nationalities 
represented are Italians, Irish, Americans, Bohemians, Russians, Belgians, 
English and Turks. In a neighborhood made up of such diverse elements, 
we aim to provide a unifying interest which shall give to every child, at 
least, widening opportunities for training head, hand and spirit — Folder, 
Neighborhood House. 

Our problems are consequently different from those of the city settle- 
ment. Our limitations in population and area complicate some of our 
questions quite as much as they simplify others, where we have such 
widely differing nationalities to work with imder one roof. The work 
is conducted upon a broadly Christian basis, but is undenominational. Our 
methods are those usual to settlements in organized and unorganized work. 
Our aim is to work with our neighbors for that social righteousness which 
shall make our part of town distinctly wholesome, helpful and lovely and 
its residents physically, morally and spiritually what they should be in a 
rural settlement. — Head Resident

The Ridgewood Household Club is situated in one of the new but grow- 
ing neighborhoods of Brooklyn. The vacant lots — unsightly but splendid 
playgrounds — are rapidly being covered with the two-family houses, which 
alone the new tenement house law makes profitable. There is a small colony 
of Italians a few blocks away,- but aside from a sprinkling of Irish, Jews 
and Americans, the population immediately about the house is German. 
It is thrifty, industrious, practical, musical and sociable. It is perhaps not 
richer than other settlement neighborhoods, but rents are low, the standard 
of comfort is high, and the habit of saving almost universal. A neighbor- 
hood such as this naturally appreciates classes in sewing and cooking for 
the girls, and in even the simpler kinds of handicraft for its boys. Along 
these lines our work has mostly lain. — Report of Head Resident, 1901-1902.

of the various denon: 'nations in the neighborhood and the settlement aims

old tenement house and give the people better accommodations. Then we formed classes 
for their education. "When we took this building t|^ere were over one thousand people liv- 
ing here." Maintained: The tenements rent for enough to carry on the house, so that 
we have plenty of room for the work, free of rent, and then a great deal of our help ia 
volunteer^ so that our expense is small, and is met by a few interested ones. At the 
present time I have paid $6,000 on the building and still owe $4,000 on that and $19,000 
on the land. When this debt is paid the work will be self-supporting." — Report, 1904.

might live in order to furnish a common meeting ground for all classes for their mutual 
benefit and education." College Settlements' Association organized to support this and 
other settlements. Incorporated X894. Maintained by yearly donations from College

Present number of residents, women 12. Average time in residence, 3 years. 
Number of non-resident workers, 60. 

Character of work: Mainly social, carried on through a series of 
clubs for children, working boys and girls, young men and young women 
and older women. Educational work is done in the kindergarten, cooking 
school, sewing, manual training and art classes. The settlement co-operates 
with other agencies for social, civic and industrial betterment. The sum- 
mer homes at Mt. Ivy and Camp Williams are important factors. 

In the literature relating to settlement work the word neighborhood 
frequently occurs; the neighborhoods are described, the settlements work 
for and with their neighborhoods, they represent their neighborhoods in 
civic affairs, and so forth. It is therefore interesting to note after an 
existence of fifteen years what this word has come to mean to the college 

New York. 71 

settlement. The constant changing of the population has made impossible 
the intensive neighborhood work, which was perhaps the ideal of the first 
residents and their supporters. The settlement and the saloons have been 
the most permanent features on the street, for even the church next door 
has become a synagogue, and only one family remains of those known to 
the house in the same block fifteen years ago. The neighborhood of the 
settlement really extends from Brooklyn to the Bronx, for in those ex- 
tremes of Greater New York many of its early friends are living. The fact 
that they continue their connection with the house and come long distances 
to their clubs with the greatest regularity shows that intensive work has 
been done with the individual, if not with the whole. It would be difficult 
enough to make an impression on a neighborhood as densely populated 
as the accompanying maps show this to be, where four years ago — ^and 
the population has been on the increase — there were over one thousand 
per acre in many blocks, and where in one near-by block there were nearly 
three thousand people; but when, in addition, this population is constantly 
changing, it is hopeless to attempt anything en masse. We are justly 
proud of the many homes scattered throughout Greater New York, where 
we always find a cordial welcome, and where higher standards of living 
may often be traced to the influence of the settlement club and its teach- 
ings. The change of scene and surroundings is broadening to the indi- 
vidual and to the club life, where, altered somewhat by the new environ- 
ment, the old friends continue to come together. It is most helpful to the 
work of the house that the first German friends have continued to come 
to it, though now in a Jewish neighborhood, and have worked with the 
younger Jewish element in its common interests. Will it not perhaps do 
away with the scorn of the "dago" when the two together welcome the 
Italians to the benefits of the house as they come into the neighborhood 
in increasing numbers? This shifting and changing, adapting somewhat to 
the new, yet clinging to the old, has prevented the settlement from adopt- 
ing any fixed policy, or showing any very definite results in the building 
up of any particular line of work. One needs to know the individuals to 
see their devotion to the house, their eagerness for club life, to be with them 
in times of joy or sorrow, to realize how much the settlement has done for 
them. Conditions have changed also in many other ways; much of the 
early educational work, for instance, is now being done by the board of 
education in the night schools and in the many lectures given in the free 
lecture courses. At the same time that regular class work in some branches 
has been dropped, in others it has been developed more thoroughly. One 
does not need to see their joy in the freedom of the open fields many 
times without being deeply impressed with the horror of the overcrowding 
in this part of the city and with the necessity for renewed effort to obtain 
more parks and playgrounds near at hand, besides access to nature's play- 
ground on the ocean beaches, and, better than all attempts to bring the 
country to them, to move them away from the city. These same old ques- 
tions, with many others — increased school accommodations, cleaner streets, 
the conditions of the tenements, efforts at the amelioration of the lives of 
the shop and factory girls in movements like the Consumers* League, in 
the industrial training of the younger girls in the trade school — ^have occu- 
pied our attention, as in former years. — Head Resident in Report of College 
Settlements^ Association, 1904, 

The East Side has claimed Mount Ivy for its own, and our summer 
house has entertained more guests than ever before. More camps have 
been added for the young men and boys, and the farmhouses in the valley 
have been filled with boarders who could not be accommodated at the "big 
house." Gradually the simple life of a few young women devoting them- 
selves to a group of twenty children has changed, and Ridge Farm has 
developed into a community life of young and old. The young men and 
women have been spending their vacation together for ten years, ui

have grown to seem like members of one large family. The home atmo- 
sphere is so apparent that the newcomers feel it, and enter into the spirit 
of the place at once. — Elisabeth Robbins Chase, in C. S. A. Report, 1904.

Present number of residents, men 4, women 2, total 6. number of non-resident

Character of work: Educational, social, moral and religious. 

The alliance, then, is an institution for the Americanization of the 
foreigner. It offers opportunities to all classes of people of the neighbor- 
hood. It endeavors to give to the immigrant what has been denied to him in 
his native land. It is progressive in its spirit, and yet conservative; con- 
servative and yet progressive. It speaks to the older generation of immi- 
grants to consider the future, and addresses itself to the rising generation 
to have regard for the past. It, so to say, "reconciles the heart of the 
parent to the heart of the child." It stands as a mediator between the 
different classes of people of the neighborhood as well as the city at large. 
It is a common meeting ground of the rich as well as the poor, of the 
learned as well as those who have not had the advantages of an educa- 
tion, of the past and of the rising generation, of native Americans and of 
foreigners, of people representing the interest of capital and of 
those representing the interest of labor, and, as far as the popu- 
lation of the neighborhood makes it possible, of Jew and (Jentile. 
In this way the institution, by its methods, brings about a better understand- 
ing, a better feeling, between the different classes, and, above all, makes 
the foreigner understand American institutions, makes him realize that 
liberty and law go together, that the rights of citizenship imply also duties, 
and that Americans are a nation governed by the people for the benefit of 
the people.— From Oppression to Freedom, by David Blaustein. Reprint

Incorporated, May 26, 1902, by Felix Adler, Eugene A. Philbin, Jacob A. Riis, A. 
Fulton Cutting, Henry C. Poller, Carl Schurz and Mary Kin^bury Simkovitch, for the 
establishment and maintenance of a social settlement or social settlements in the city 
of New York, as centers for social, educational and civic improvements, to be carried 
on in conjunction and association with the people residing in the neighborhoods where 
such settlement or settlements may be situated." — Extract from Certificate of Incor- 
poration. Maintained by the Corporation Social Settlement Society. 

Head resident, Mary Kingsbury Simkovitch. 

Present number of residents, men 6, women 9, children 2, total 17. 

Character of work: (i) visiting, (2) neighborhood work, (3) clubs, 
classes, bank stations, library, (4) social investigation, (5) co-operation 
with other agencies, (6) local improvements. 

It has been the avowed purpose of the Society from the start not to make 
of the home center a noisy clubhouse filled with various hybrid educational 
and social activities that will gradually drive out the simple home life, without 
which a settlement is devoid of that spirit that alone can render it perma- 
nently useful in the neighborhood as a stimulus toward generally improved con- 
ditions; for a settlement is primarily a stimulus and only secondarily an 
institution. Institutional features should be undertaken by a settlement 
only when it is impossible for the settlement to get anybody else to under- 
take them. — Report, January, 1903. 

The essence of settlement work is freedom to meet a new opporttmity, 

^^"^ .elasticity is difficult to combine with a highly developed institution. 

New York. ^^ 

This does not mean that institutional work has not its place and value 
in settlement activities, but it does mean that the institution ought never 
to get the chance to strangle the fresh opportunities which are constantly 
springing up from the social life of a neighborhood such as ours. The 
settlement is founded on a belief that the springs of beauty of character 
and of tlie best social development are to be found in the lives of our 
working people, and that, firm in that belief, it is our duty and privilege 
to work with them, so to change the outer conditions of their lives that 
those inner springs will have a chance to develop. That is what the civic 
side of the work means. The population of our neighborhood is heter- 
ogenous; largely Irish- American, but increasingly Italian. There are 
Jewish shopkeepers on the main thoroughfares, and there is quite an 
admixture of Germans and French. There are also many colored people 
in our immediate neighborhood, for the most part highly respected and 
law-abiding citizens. — Mrs, Simkovitch, in Second Annual Report, Oct,, 1903,

The district was still a fashionable residence quarter fifty years ago, 
and retains many of its old houses and much of its old charm, although it is 
changing rapidly, and will soon show an unbroken front of tall and crowded 
tenements. Already the streets east of the settlement are filled with these 
and swarm with children, and are noisy with the cries of the pushcart ven- 
ders. This easterly section is wholly Italian, and the settlement could easily 
give its entire time and strength to help these newcomers in their 
bewildered efforts at adaptation to the distressing conditions and 
strange life into which they have plunged straight from their simple country 
homes. To the west, between the settlement and the Hudson, the old three- 
story dwellings are now for the most part filled by the Irish-American 
truck-drivers and longshoremen, though many of the old residents still cling 
to their early homes. The aim of the settlement is simply the good of the 
district, and the work falls naturally into two classes — public and private. 
In the public work the House keeps in touch with the civic movements, wilii 
social and educational work, and tries to represent all the best interests of tihe

district It co-operates with the agencies for municipal and local improvement 
to secure for its neighborhood its share of every benefit, and works for the just 
enforcement of the laws and ordinances that affect it. In the past the 
House has done good work in securing advanced child-labor legislation, in 
retaining the essential provisions of the new tenement-house law, and seeing 
to the just enforcement of factory and sanitary laws, and it plans to devote 
much of its energy during the coming year to the better application of 
the compulsory school law. — Circular,

Present number of residents, men 6, women 10, total 16. Average time in residence,

Character of work: Aside from the distinctively religious work of a 
church Simday-school and Bible classes, organized by the neighbors, there

including the workingmen's club, athletic, camera, as well as tiie more 
usual, with an estimated weekly attendance of 2,575. 

The population of this section in 1900 was 37,516. Of these persons, 32,687 
called a tenement house "home." These tenement dwellers represented 7,093 
families. As to parentage, the nationalities were distributed as follows : German 
26 per cent, Irish 22 per cent, Italian 19 per cent, Russian 9 per cent, United 
States 5 per cent, other countries 19 per cent. Since that time there has

been a steady inflow of people, very many of whom have come up from 
the lower East Side, largely increasing the number of Jews. The recent 
rapid growth of population is indicated by the public school statistics. 
Although three modem schoolhouses were erected in the neighborhood 
about three years ago, in the hope that the accommodations thus provided 
would be adequate for some time to come, this season the attendance 
has far outrun the seating capacity of the schools. In the six schools 
of our school district (the 17th) there were over 1,300 vacant scats in 
October, 1902. Last October the registration so far exceeded the capacity 
of the schools that 1,922 children were in part-time classes. We have not 
the great overcrowding of the lower East Side, but some of our blocks 
— one, for example, with a population of 3,021, and a density of 622 to 
the acre — would furnish material enough to people a good-sized town. 
"Little Italy,'' just east and north of us, with its more than 40,000 Italians, 
furnishes problems and needs that appeal for intelligent and sympathetic 
consideration. From a police point of view, our precinct, the 29th, is 
"troublesome." There is always "something doing." The region is well 
supplied with saloons. In the forty blocks of our immediate neighbor- 
hood, there are 8,184 families and 103 saloons, or one saloon to every 
79 families. The Star Theater, a little north of us, with its weekly change 
of plays, attracts great crowds, and is the chief amusement center. There 
arc several dance halls. — A Report in Paragraphs, Feb., IQ04,

Founded, in 1887, under the name of the Neighborhood Guild, by Dr. Stanton Coit, 
who had in 1886 organized a club of boys who met in his rooms at 146 Forsyth Street.. 
Later headquarters were transferred to 147 Forsyth Street. In 1888 Dr. Coit went to' 
Europe and Miss Jean Fine was director of the work. In 1S89 Charles B. Stover be- 
came the head. In January, 1889, a branch was established at 340 Cherry Street. This 
was later discontinued. In 1891 the Guild was reorganized with the name of University 
Settlement In 1893 a house was rented at 26 Delancey Street, Dr. Coit again in 
residence. Mr. James B. Reynolds took his place when Dr. Coit returned to Europe. 
In 1898 the Settlement moved to its new and especially equipped building at 184 
Eldridge Street (Corner Rivington Street). 

The object of the Society is "to bring men and women of education into closer 
relations with the laboring classes in this city, for their mutual benefit The Society 
shall establish and maintain in the tenement house districts places of residence for 
college men and others desirous of aiding in the lyork, with rooms where the people of 
the neighborhood may meet for social and educational purposes." — Constitution. 

Head resident, James H. Hamilton. (Former head residents, Mr. Charles H. Stover, 
Mr. John McCioodale. Dr. Stanton Coit. Mr. James H. Reynolds.) 

Number of residents, men 11. Number of non-resident workers, 60 to 70. 

New York. 87 

Character of i^ork: (i) To offer educational and social opportunities 
to people of the neighborhood, as kindergarten, library, bank, 40 clubs, 
classes, lectures, debates, dances, concerts, art exhibitions, flower dis- 
tributions, music school, summer camps, gymnasium, baths, etc; (2) social 
investigation. Each year the residents or some other workers join in the 
study of one or more particular features. These researches are related 
to some practical purpose which it is hoped to turn to the advantage 
of the community; (3) co-operation with charitable societies of the neigh- 
borhood, with city or local organizations working for the good of the 
community, as trade unions, benefit societies, social organizations, educa- 
tional societies, city and state officials, philanthropies. — Eighteenth Report of 
Bureau of Labor Statistics, N. Y., 1900. 

All the people, men, women, or children, in any one street, or any small 
number of streets, in every working-class district, * * * shall be organized 
into a set of clubs which are by themselves, or in alliance with those of other 
neighborhoods, to carry out, or induce others to carry out, all the reforms, 
domestic, industrial, educational, provident, or recreative, which the social 
ideal demands. At the outset, a true insight into the spirit and methods 
of the Guild will perhaps be gained most readily by noting that it is an 
expansion of the family idea of co-operation. — Dr. Stanton Coit, 

Responsibiltiy and mutual service are the keynote of the guild idea. It 
has succeeded so well in developing native leadership, because it has put into 
actual existence without equivalent or fear that absolute democracy which 
should be the ideal of every settlement. — Frances McLean. 

Into this area, consisting of forty-five blocks, more than 72,000 inhab- 
itants are congested, and it is said to be the most thickly settled locality 
per acre in the world. The population is almost entirely foreign, including 
people from Russia, Poland, Germany, Roumania — ^nearly all Hebrews — 
and the community constitutes a large part of the section known as the 
Ghetto. — Eighteenth Report of Bureau of Labor Statistics, N. Y., 1900. 

^ In these various ways the Settlement can accomplish the broad work 
which it feels it is called upon to undertake. Its experience has taught 
its workers the many-sidedness of social reform. Such reform to be sat- 
isfactory and progressive must reach all the interests of home life, touching 
and improving the social and moral relations of the individual and the 
civic and public relations of the community. The Settlement has been 
particularly impressed by the influence for good or evil of city and state 
governments in their respective relations to the poor. While not urging 
too hasty movement for the extension of governmental powers, the settle- 
ment believes that public interests among sanitary, educational and even 
some moral lines, are better safeguarded by comprehensive public inspection 
than by the effort of private individuals, and it believes, also, that public 
officials need constantly the stimulus of co-operation and of criticism. 
But it seeks to make its co-operation cordial and its criticism constructive. 
Thus, in the broadest sense, all its work is a work of co-operation with 
existing forces, which make, or should make, for righteousness. — Mr. 
James Reynolds.

It would be possible to write at length of the details of life and 
work at both Christian Street and Front Street; of the occupations of 
clubs and classes; the successes and failures with individuals and groups; 
to offer an appreciation of the faithful non-resident, "perhaps to preach 
a sermon of reproof and warning to those less devoted; to enumerate 
the services of our Swarthmore and Bryn Mawr College Chapters and 
of the sub-chapters of the city and vicinity; to enlarge on the help 
given us by the co-operation of other organizations, such as the Needle 
Work Guild, the Haverford Flower Mission, the Plant Flower and Fruit 
Guild, the Country Nursery, the Octavia Hill Association, the Society for 
Organizing Charity, the Alberta Home and other summer outing agencies; 
to express our growing dependence in the activities of the house on the 
help in the way of personal service rendered by the immediate neighbor- 
hood; to describe the pleasure brought by successful special occasions during 
the year, such as the Lippincott garden party and Uie Swarthmore picnic 
in the early summer, or the most gratifying presentation of "The Rivals" 
in January at the Mask and Wig Auditorium under the direction of Mr. 
Joseph Craig Fox; to repeat the story of the Chalkley Hill Country Club, 
uding the pastoral of the garden, the epic of the stolen boat, the

romance of the flirtatious girl, and so on; to describe the city substitutes 
for outings in the use of yards, roof garden, and shower baths; to record 
the accomplishment of progress by other organizations in our district, such 
as the gymnasium and playground use of the Starr Garden Park by the 
Starr Center, the School Gardens of the Public Education Association in 
Weccacol Square, the special School of the Board of Education on Front 
Street, the opening of a new settlement among the Italians, and the estab- 
lishment of a small hospital among the same people. — Head Worker, Report

Bead resident, Esther Levy. (Former head resident. Miss Lizzie Freedman.)

Character of work: Literary, social, athletic and charitahle (aid) cluhs, 
of boys and girls. Art department. The life section of this department has 
recently been organized as a club, the funds of which are used as a sick benefit 
for the members and to aid poor students who desire to go to the Academy

It is intended especially for the Jewish population of iJie neighborhood, 
although non- Jewish boys and girls can be found in many of the clubs and 
classes. The keynote of our work is personal service. Through the various 
clubs and classes and, above all, through frequent visiting in the homes, a 
constant eflFort is being made to help the ever-widening chasm between 
the parents and the children, due in a grtBt measure to the too-rapid Ameri- 
canizing of the children and the slower progress of the parents. — Head

munity. It aims to do this by (i) guiding the foreign-bom to American 
conditions, (2) encouraging self-improvement, (3) stimulating healthy 
pleasures, (4) broadening civic interests, (5) creating ideals of conduct. 
The place is a home in the life of its residents, an institution in the service 
of its friends, a school in the work of its teachers, a clubhouse in the social 
uses of its neighbors, a civic organization in the interests of the community, 
a settlement in the choice of its location. — Report for year ending May

Present number of residents, men 4, women 5, children x, total 10. Number of

Character of work: Clubs for boys and girls, classes in arithmetic, 
debating, parliamentary practice, English, cooking, sewing, dressmaking, 
kindergarten, library, gymnasium, ba&s, playground, cotmtry outings, etc. 
We are striving to help in the making of strong, clean, upright character. 
Not by numbers nor by events would we mark our progress, but by in- 
fluence — ^influence that comes from first-hand social contact with men, 
women, boys and girls of our community. Very slightly, perhaps, yet with 
some effect, we believe, has Kingsley House made itself felt in the larger 
life of the city. So imperative have been the demands for almost constant 
presence in the house itself that we have found little time to acquaint 
ourselves with the larger neighborhood about us. Some time has been 
spent in the investigating of housing conditions in our own neighborhood. 
Let its range of social service grow wider and wider, helping to stir into 
activity and to mass together the available forces of righteousness in the 
while city, forces which at present are much divided and widely scattered. — 
Head Resident, in the Kingsley House Ass. Year Book, 1903. 

What docs Kingsley House stand for in Pittsburg to-day? It is a 
place where men and women may make their homes, laboring intelligently, 
constantly, fearlessly, sincerely for the needs of the locality, binding them-! 
selves by s)rmpathy, service and love to the lives of the people, co-operating 
in every possible way with all persons who are working for the good of 
the neighborhood, carrying the great principle of friendship into all that 
they do and doing it in such a way that it shall be possible for all good 
men to associate Qiemselves with the work. — Head Resident, in address on

Character of work: Qubs and classes (for about 500 people a week), 
library and penny bank, Juvenile Court work, visiting nurse, distribution of 
modified milk, vacation school, garden class under auspices of Outdoor Art 
Associations, sociological investigations. 

The settlement, then, is a former rather than a reformer; it is the ounce 
of prevention; a clearing house for social values, where each half may 
learn something about the other half; a neutral meeting place where capitd 
and labor may talk it out; where the social amenities and free humanities 
of life may prevail. For, after all, the various clubs and classes and activities

necessary to any real sharing of interests; the manifest pleasure of the 
people at our attempts to speak their tongue is a great encouragement to 
effort — Head Resident.

resident workers, 50. 

Other branches of Bermondsey Settlement: St. (jeorge's House, West Lane and 
Beatrice House, 39 Prince's Street, Kotherhithe, S. E. London, England . 

The work of the settlement, whatever may be its special nature, 
divides itself into three main branches. In the first place, it affects 
the more favorably placed members of the community. Forms of re- 
ligious teaching, educational and recreative facilities are afforded, which 
for the present satisfy the desires rather of the select few than of the 
many. The select are not indeed confined to any one class or type. 
But the second class of activities tends to reach and help those at 5ie 
other extreme, who represent the least favorably placed, the most helpless 
and apathetic of the community. A district like Bermondsey, with its 
population of city workers on the one hand, with its long line of water- 
side, with all the conditions of casual labor and overcrowding on the other, 


io6 England. 

and with no great skilled industries in betvveen, brings sharply home to 
the mind the fact that the conditions of city life, if left to themselves, 
while they tend to the improvement of many, tend equally to the demor- 
alization of those who have been called "the submerged tenth." Lastly, a 
considerable portion of our work is concerned with the work of administra- 
tion, either of public bodies, or of general philanthropy. In all tiiiis it is 
important to maintain the spirit out of which settlements originally arose, 
and the methods which are in harmony with that spirit Complaint has 
been made that settlements have sunk into mere institutions. In a measure 
this cannot be avoided, for all associations for common ends bring about 
organization and create instruments. Yet two things are to be desired. 
In the first place, the establishment and method of friendship must be 
maintained as absolutely vital. In the next place, it would ht of ines- 
timable value if men and women could be found, who, without uniform or 
anything suggestive of a special religious calling, would go and live as 
ordinary neighbors in some of our meanest strttts.— Warden, in Thirteenth

ishes which have no rich residents; second, a sphere of useful work 
for the church for ladies who have no wish to enter sisterhoods or who 
can, for family reasons, only give three or four months in the year to 
outside work. It has evidently struck a vein which needed tapping, for 
it has grown beyond the expectation of its founders. — Statement of Head

Character of work: In addition to the usual clubs, meetings, lectures, 
medical and legal aid, holiday home, nursery, a trades registry for girls, 
residents have served as guardians of the poor, local managers for various 
day and evening schools on the Twentieth Century- League (swimming 
and gymnastics), the Mansion House Unemployed Relief Committee, the

Hoxton is the leading criminal quarter of London, and indeed of all 
England "Wall off Hoxton,'* and it is said, "and nine-tenths of the criminals 
of London would be walled off.** In Hoxton thieves of every kind seem to be 
represented. When we add to this widespread criminal element a great mass 
of poverty and extremely low life, and when we remember that over a consid- 
erable part of the area anyone who can rise a little in the world is sure to 
leave (unless indeed his success in life is connected with thieving or dealing 
in stolen goods), we may understand how terribly difficult is the task of social 
and religious reform. The people generally live under extremely crowded con- 
ditions; it is stated, not improbably, that about a quarter of them are chon- 
ically out of work. Both from sanitary and economic causes there is a good 
deal of physical weakness. They have not the food they require. If not 
underfed they are ill fed. Among this very degraded population, many 
of whom are without grit, stamina or backbone, and among whom sturdi- 
ness often tends to criminality, social problems have to be faced as 
serious as any, and whatever plans may be adopted, men and women and 
money are required to carry them out--Chas. Booth, Life and Labor of the

being under the auspices of the Wesleyans. The plant far exceeds any- 
thing before erected for social settlement purposes and marks the greatest 
development yet seen in institutionalized settlement work. The hall seats 
2,000 people comfortably. Excellent and ample gymnasium facilities are 
provided for both sexes and all ages. An interesting feature is a roof 
garden, with an area of about 300 square feet, for open air preaching, 
lectures and concerts. This is accessible, not only through the building, 
but close by a stairway from the street. The cost of the buildings amounts 
to about $560,000. An idea of the magnitude of the proposed work is 
gathered from the large provision for residents. It is expected that there 
will be no less than sixty residents, giving their leisure to the social work 
of the Settlement, and these will be made up of students, business men, 
women workers and others. — The Commons, Chicago, 9:10, p, 509 C04).

most interesting vacation school is part of the work of the settlement. 
The workmen and working women of the neighborhood are brought 
into active participation in the work and life of the place as associates, 
whose spirit is expressed as follows: 

We believe that many changes in the conditions of life and labor are 
needed, and are coming to pass ; but we believe also that men, without any 
change except in themselves and in their feelings toward one another, might 
make this world a better and happier place. Therefore, with the same 
S3rmpathies but different experiences of life, we meet to exchange ideas and to 
discuss social questions, in the hope that as we learn to know one another 
better, a feeling of fellowship may arise among us. To these ends we have a 
library, clubs, lectures, classes, entertainments, etc., and we endeavor to make 
the settlement a center where we may unite our several resources in a 
social and intellectual home.— Circular Rules of Associateship and State-

advancement and execution of projects designed to promote their welfare." — Memoran- 
dum of Association, 

Warden, Francis Herbert Stead, M. A.

been 10 years in residence, and of the 16 enumerated the average during these xo 
years has been about 2 yars 8 months. Number of non-resident workers, 30, "besides 
a whole army of workers from the working people living around us and another host 
of occasional helpers from the suburbs." 

Character of work: Special stress has been laid on the labor move- 
ment generally and on the labor movement in religion, on resident kpusc- 
holds rather than on a resident convent, on effacing the distinction between 
"residents" and "neighbors;" on the Street Group with Street Friend and 
Ward Friend; "net work" of neighborliness ; Browning Hall conference on 
housing, Pres. Rt-Hon. Chas. Booth; national committee of organized labor 
to promote old age pensions for all, union of all churches in tie service of

The very poorest district of the vast metropolis. In the center of this 
immense workmen's town, "a mass of brick and smoke, dirty and dusky/* 
is the division of Walworth. Inside its boundaries is the central point 
of the county of London. Here, then, we have the heart of the great city. 
In the square mile that surrounds the Settlement there are now herded 
together more than 120,000 human beings. In the ward in which it stands 
268 persons are living on the acre, as against 56 for Londofi as a whole. — 
The Robert Browning Settlement, by Wm. T. Stead, Jr, 

"For loftiness of ideal, for the successful promotion of the union of 
Churches in the service of the poor, and for width of practical sympathy with 
the lives of the people, the Browning Settlement holds the palm among all 
such institutions." — Mr, Charles Booth in opening the Browning Club, 
June, igo2.

Present number of residents, men 18. Number of non-resident workers, about 200. 

Activities of the settlement are too numerous to mention. They are 
social, recreative and educational. 

The majority of the residents at Toynbee Hall are engaged in profes- 
sional duties of their own, and visit clubs, take classes, etc., in their even- 
ings or other spare time. A few of the residents are able to give their 
whole time. Care is taken to strengthen existing institutions, of which 
^^^Te are many in East London, rather than to start new ones; to supply

them with workers rather than to supplant or compete with them. The 
educational work, though it extends to about i,ooo students, and occupies 
a large place in reports and in the notice of visitors to the hall, does not 
absorb so much of the time or care of the actual residents as is some- 
times supposed. Tojmbee Hall has given it a home and center, and has, 
to a great extent, supplied the initial impetus which has enabled it to go on 
of itself. Much of the educational work here described does not touch 
directly the "working classes," but a class rather better off, whose intel- 
lectual needs are in some ways as great, and the provision for them ("sec- 
ondary education") not yet so well organized. There can be no doubt 
that the future of London, and the welding of its citizens into one, will 
be greatly influenced for good by the growth of real knowledge, and of 
liberal education amongst this class, and by the friendships formed in the 
common pursuit of it. But the educational work is also attracting in 
increasing numbers the artisan and laboring classes. Wadham House and 
Balliol House, close to To3mbee Hall, give to men engaged during the 
day in business, but wishing to avail themselves of the educational oppor- 
tunities offered by the hall, some of the r^dvantages of college life. The 
rent of a room (including the use of a "common room") is 8 shillings a 
week. There are about fifty-five students now in residence. Toynbee Hall, 
in its corporate capacity, is nonpolitical and undenominational. No one, by 
living there or by helping it, commits himself to any particular set of opin- 
ions. But individual residents can and do take their own line both in 
thought and work. — Extracts from circular of general information issued by 
Toynbee Hall, March, iqoo, 

Toynbee Hall — it seems as if it never could be too often repeated — 
stands for the way of life as distinct from the way of machinery. The 
world is moved by the power which is applied by character, by the personal 
influence of individuals, by life, and also by that which is applied by 
organization, by law, by machinery. Toynbee Hall exists that individuals 
may tell on individuals, that the knowledge accumulated in the universities 
and the experience accumulated in industry may move public opinion through 
the friendships formed between university men and the inhabitants of indus- 
trial neighborhoods. But such friendships are sure to lead to organizations. 
When two or three meet together and in the presence of the higher ideal 
which appears in their midst see the ignorance or the suffering of the sin 
which is around, they cannot help starting the machinery by which that 
goodwill may become effective. — Warden in Fifteenth Annual Report, June 
30, 1899- 

It is not a mission devoted to some reform. It is not an institution estab- 
lished to educate or amuse the poor. It is a settlement of men from the 
Universities who have elected to live their own lives and follow their own 
ideals under the conditions imposed by a citizen's life in Whitechapel. 
Last year an average of i8 men occupied the House. Each resident has 
his own opinions on politics and on religion which he holds strongly. But 
the fact which strikes visitors is the prevailing unity, the agreement to differ 
on these subjects while they together face such facts of the neighborhood 
as the poverty of hope, the plentifulness of disease, the perversion of energy, 
the recent prevalence of smallpox, overcrowding, and children*}- wrongs, 
The life of the house — something like that of a Qub, something like that of 
the University — is pleasant enough, with its "Quad" in front, and its tennis 
court behind. The health which prevails has been remarkable, there has been 
no serious illness, while some men have gained strength in the drier and 
thought-stimulating air of Whitechapel. But enough has been said to show 
that Toynbee Hall is an association of persons with different opinions and 
different tastes, that its unity is that of variety, that its methods are spiritual 
rather than material, aiming at permeation rather than at conversion, and 
that its trust is in friends linked to friends rather than in organizatioa — 

ijo England. 

Warden in the Eighteenth Annual Report of the Universities' Settlement 
in East London, June so, 1902, 

Toynbec Hall has tried to keep near to the old idea. The residents 
arc not pledged to any theory or bound to any form of charitable work — 
they do not come professing to do their neighbors good — ^the house has 
no policy for the improvement of Whitechapel, and is responsible for no 
dass, or area, or club in East London — the council has no public meetings, 
and issues no public appeal for money— each individual resident, obejring 
a call to serve his generation, chooses his 0¥»n way of acting, and identifies 
himself with any outside organization, religious or political, as his opinions 
and taste direct But Toynbee Hall is, of course, affected by the opinion 
which has been formed about settlements, and the likeness to an institution 
is more apparent. The place has thus come to be identified with certain 
"doings," social and educational. Forms of activity started by residents 
in earlier years have been organized, and the output is more ready for 
measurement by the numbers of students who attend classes — ^the number 
of boys or men in clubs — ^the number of children sent to the country. — 
Warden in Nineteenth Annual Report, June jo, 1903. 

There is perhaps a more general eagerness for knowledge of the facts 
of social conditions as compared with an eagerness to do something — a 
more scientific spirit but no less readiness for sacrifice. The life of the 
house has, indeed, never been more encouraging, more promising of a time 
when educated men will take their own place in the movement toward social 
reform. The sign of hope may be small as a man's hand, at a time when 
enthusiasm seems ^o rare and the cries of conflicting interests fill the 
air, but a sign that the "universities" and "industries" are finding a com- 
mon work may mean great changes. — Warden in Twentieth Annual Report, 
June JO, 1904, 

In so far as Toynbee Hall is a self-supporting common residence or 
club of individuals, with diverse opinions, interests and activities, we have 
to take note of the action of many public bodies, societies and institutions, 
which are independent of Toynbee Hall, but in which our residents and 
associates have individually played a part, great or small. In so far as 
Toynbee Hall is itself an institution, educational or philanthropic, among 
other institutions, with its own aims and activities and its own body of 
subscribers, we have to speak of the education it has organized, the enter- 
tainments it has provided, the clubs it has supported, and the many socie- 
ties that cluster round it. There is one, or rather there are three, more 
functions which belong to each and every resident, as they are of the 
essence of Toynbee Hall itself; the residents have, first, the function of 
educating themselves by contact with modes of life and thought, better 
or worse, certainly other than those to which they are accustomed; second, 
the function of keeping up to the full the old connection with the imiver- 
sities 'in order to spread this new knowledge and these new interests there and 
elsewhere. The third is the custom of visits to Oxford and Cambridge. —

30, 1904*

These things we may and do provide, yet there remain the unwhole- 
some houses, crowding every inch of ground, to the exclusion of light and 
air; the dirty, narrow and ill-lit streets, the smoky air, the crowded and 
overcrowded life from which death ^nd disease yearly take such terrible 
toll, and all that goes with these These constitute a problem which for 
its solution will require much study, much time and much energy, but 
which must be faced and dealt with. We see glaring evils in our district, 
to mend which the Gyration of greater powers than those possessed by 
our or similar organizations is required. Alongside our other activities, 
therefore, we must develop and stimulate a healthy and vigorous sense 
of citizenship, which in time will find its expression in the work of our 
municipality. To this aspect of our work the associates have recently been 
turning their attention, and during the coming year it is probable that 
more or less definite lines of work will be formulated. There are two 
things in our work here which seem to differentiate it from that carried 
on by other settlements or similar organizations elsewhere. The first is 
our possession of the Art Museum. The second differentiating feature of 
our organization is the associate body. This body, comprising as it does 
all those who give personal service, is our fighting force. — Warden's Re- 
port, 1903-1904,

Station Road, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. England. 

Founded, November, 1897, by the Lord Bishop of Lichfield, "to work among the 
poverty-stricken area of the Staffordshire potteries." Incorporated. Maintained by 
payments from residents and by subscriptions. 

Head resident. Miss Maude Gamett Present number of residents, women to. 
Average time in residents, 6 years to 6 months. Non-resident workers, 4, with the help

Character of work: Qasses and clubs for factory girls, for pit lads, 
for women; Bible classes, relief committees, social evenings for factory 
girls, organized visitation of the homes of the poor. 

In the potteries there is no leisure class; all are poor. There is no 
money within the area worked; no agencies such as in London or large 
towns, hence there are more difficulties in working. — Head Resident. 

It has justified its existence as a bridge-maker between class and class; 
it affords concentration of effort and continuity of work; it offers workers

Founded, 1887, by Prof. Patrick Geddes, on private initiative, with assistance of 
friends "for the development of social intercourse among all classes of students." It 
is self-supporting. 

Senior resident, Prof. Patrick Geddes. 

Number of residents, 132. Average time in residence, 3 years. 

It IS difficult to give figures since there is not a diflFerentiation betiween 
workers and residents. Naturally many residents who are students, etc, 
do not do any settlement work as ordinarily understood, but yet help in 
the work of University Hall by the mere fact of residence. The depart- 
ments of work are: (i) Provision of social residence among university 
students, graduates and others. (2) City improvement by alteration of 
existing and erection of new buildings. (3) Educational, especially in 
social science, geography, history, nature study and art — Senior Resident 

The work of University Hall is now carried on by the Town and 
Gown Association, Limited. Prof. Geddes is managing director, — Whitson 
and Methuen, Secretaries, 21 Rutland Street, Edinburgh, Scotland, 

The objects of this association are, as its name implies, two-foldr--civic 
and academic, architectural and educational. On the one hand, it is con- 
cerned with buildings and sanitation; on the other, with the organization 
of residential halls for students and others connected with the universities 
and with the liberal professions generally. The repair of unoccupied tene- 
ments, and Jthe erection of new blocks of workmen's dwellings of the 
very best class, have been actively in progress" for four years past In 
fact, the housing of the workman has been going on almost as rapidly as 
that of the student. In 1893, '94 and '95, respectively, three, twenty-four, 
and twenty-five entirely new houses, mostly of two rooms, but sometimes of 
three, have been opened; while six, twelve and fifteen similar houses in 
old slum property have been thoroughly repaired and renewed in these 
successive years, making a total gain of eighty-five artisan dwellings to 
the accommodation of the Old Tovm.^Prospectus of the Association.

From the outset we have tried to make Toynbec House a center of 
social work in the district. Members of the association, grouped together as 
families, undertook to get gradually acquainted with residents, and to invite 
them to social gatherings . . . and this gave us opportunities of becom- 
ing better acquainted with our neighbors. I think that we may say that 
each of these families has established itself as the nucleus of a little friendly 
circle which has grown . . . with time. — Professor Edward Caird.

Character of the French Settlements. 

In Paris the educational part is easy to organize and usually success- 
ful. But the residence scheme and the patronage are awkward to carry out 
... I think that the plan of a body of residents, in the English or the 
American style, has not yet been successfully tried in the French capital. 
The milieu is not really favorable. If the residents want to win a good 
reputation in the quarter they have chosen they have to live exactly as 
the people around them. If they indulge in, I do not say luxurious but 
simply comfortable rooms« it will be known and some will feel jealous or 
judge it unsuitable. If, having noticed that state of feeling, you oblige the 
residents to live in poor rooms,, in the outlyingg parts of Paris, you will 
find most likely some trouble in recruiting people to live the life of apostles 
or missionaries. The question of patronage is by no means an easier 
one, for the reasons I have already explained. I suppose those are the 
reasons why social settlements have not flourished in France, but for the 

France. 129 

present I must remark that among the Universites poptilaires, no one works 
on the line of a settlement. In a capital where paupers are not exceedingly 
numerous, when there is no particular prestige of wealth or society, but in 
fact a real prestige of brains, the popular university is certainly better 
adapted to the situation. — A. Siegfried, Settlements, Why None in France, 
The Outlook, 74:995 (August 22, 1903), 

It is not strictly orthodox to call the institutions of the Faubourg St. 
Antoine and its Paris and Provincial imitators "settlements/* since (if we 
except Belleville, where a number of university students have taken up 
their abode in a workingman's tenement house) the workers in them are 
not "residents." They call themselves "universites populaires," but they 
have so little in common with "university extension" — ^which has existed 
here for thirty years, and has displayed considerable vigor within the last 
ten or twelve — and so much in common, spite of the absence of "residents," 
with the settlement, that it is doing no great violence to reality or language 
to class them with the latter. It is not only that they are active in a score 
of ways in which university extension is inert — they are primarily social, 
and only remotely and indifferently pedagogic — but the relations between 
the workers and the people are of the same intimate, natural, wholesome, 
mutually benefiting character as in the settlements, the settlement attitude 
being one of getting as well as giving, in pursuance of the settlement belief 
that the people have quite as much to teach as they have to learn. — Alvin F,

La Fondation Universitaire de Belleville. 

19 or IS I Rue de Belleville, Paris, France. 

Founded 1899, by M. Bardoux, M. Jean de Schlumberger (grandson of M. Guizot) 
and eighteen other students '*une oeuvre d'enseignement mutuel et d'education sociale; 
elle croit avoir trouv6 le moyen, notamment par la creation des groupes d*£tudes et 
rinstitution des residents, ces deux characters les plus originaux, d'etre aussi utile 
travailleurs manuels gu' aux apprentis de la pensee, de r^unir les uns et les autres 
f rater nellement confondus dans un groupement harmonieur." 

Number of residents during first two years, 20. 

Character of work: From November 5, 1899, to October, 1902, 1,153 
people came to the house, 4,550 volumes were loaned, an anti-alchoholic 
drinking booth was established, a bureau of mutual aid, legal and medical 
advice established, fifty-nine dramatic representations were given. There 
were 166 general conferences, 296 lessons with thirteen groups of studies. 

Not the least of such difficulties is the high standard of systematic 
instruction they have set before themselves. This has, no doubt, alienated 
all except the elite of workmen; and they have probably acted wisely in 
paying more attention to quality than to quantity of the work. The under- 
taking has not had the same success among the students as it has among 
the workers. It is not easy to transplant an English idea in a foreign 
land. — O. Rysden, in Econ. Review, XII, (October, 1902),

Muhlenberg 41, Hamburg, Germany. 

Founded July, 1901, by a group of young people to bring together those that one day 
will have important relations in government or business with the laboring class; to give the 
former an opportunity of seeing with their own eyes the conditions in which the average 
worker lives, see his surroundings and get acquainted with his conceptions of government, 
socialism, labor, wealthy people and of the world in general. The bulk of the Hamburg 
workingmen belong to the Social Democratic party — "to bring to people what is really 
lacking, and that in the first place is some good and cheap enjoyment, a social and aesthetic 
center for the neighborhood. Besides that the settlement has tried to remove as much as 
possible all prejudices." — ^A. Westenholtz in article in The Commons (Chicago), 7:77 
(December, 1902). 

Directors, Dr. Wilhelm Harts, Dr. Heinz Marr. 

Number of residents, o. Number of non-resident workers, 177.

deserves to be called a text-book on architecture, you will fed that you 
have been transplanted back to the seventeenth century, never even dream- 
ing that within those old walls sprouted pretty nearly all that is modem 
and practical in Prague. You enter a large courtyard and ascend an old, 
spotlessly clean staircase well worn by the thousands of feet that have 
walked over it to the hospitable ''home." At the other end of the jrard is 
the entrance to the "Industrial Museum," the direct outgrowth of this 
settlement work, founded by the mother, son and wife, so much loved by 
their "neighbors." — From Bohemia: A Stir of Its Social Conscience, By

contributors being workers, and in part by small fees from those attending lessons, 
concerts, etc. 

Head resident. Miss J. Roeper. 

Present number of residents, women 1. Number of non-resident workers, 100. 

134 Holland. 

Character of work: Though in many respects the object of the Toynbee 
Association at the Hague is the same as, for instance, that of the London 
Toynbee Hall, the first-named institution cannot be styled "a settlement." 
All its collaborators are persons having beside other occupations and avoca- 
tions, who at fixed times, mostly in the evening, come to the premises of 
the association in order to preside at smoking evenings of the workmen or 
tea parties of female laborers, to give tuition in sundry subjects, to supervise 
a lending library and a reading room, to superintend the meetings of chil- 
dren's and girls' clubs, to lead musical and theatrical performances of 
workmen, etc. Moreover, such non-resident workers act as guides of travel- 
ing clubs and accompany clubs visiting museums, exhibitions or factories. 
Finally, among the workers may be computed the artists, some of them the 
most prominent in the country, who perform in large halls, open to all 
members of the working classes who frequent the premises of the associa- 
tion. Quite recently one woman resident has joined the association, residing 
in its premises and devoting all her time to its objects. — A, Van Gijn, presi-

the town. There is not one settlement in Holland, because we are fortunate enough to 
have no excessively big towns."

Founded, March i, 1897, b^ Dr. D. C. Greene and Sen Joseph Katayama, under 
the auspices of the A. B. F. Mission and the King^ey Hall Araociation. 

Head resident. Sen Joseph Katayama. 

Number of residents, men 3, women 2, children 2, total 7. Number of non-resident 
workers, 5. 

Kenda, where the settlement is located, is the most crowded section 

of the city of Tokyo. Its population consists not only of the poor, but also 

of the students in the schools and universities of Tokyo. In the midst of 

this section, whose population is above 200,000 — Tokyo is a city of over a 

million souls — Mr. Katayama opened his house, naming it after the great 

English Christian socialist. The main object of the hall is to become a 

connecting link between the higher and lower classes of the country, and at 

the same time to impart scientific knowledge to young men. — The Commons,

The honorable secretary writes: **It is hoped that we may be able to 
resume the work of a residential settlement before long. We therefore 
thought it best to confine ourselves for the present to an effort to bring 
together in friendly intercourse, for the purpose of political and social 
discussion, representatives of the university and of the laboring classes, 
and to avoid anything in the nature of charity work. We have also identi- 
fied ourselves with political agitations for the amelioration of social con- 
ditions, and have lately had the satisfaction of seeing an early closing act, 
the agitation for which we were mostly responsible, become law. Our 
efforts to cultivate good feeling between class and class have not been 
fruitless. Our members have been welcomed in the councils of trade and 
labor organizations, and our assistance is sought from time to time by 
classes of workingmen who are endeavoring to improve their condition. 
The work is still in its infancy, and more may be hoped for the future."
